lyrics

I live to my proportions in the letter of the law
I'm a good little boy, I do what I'm told
I place my faith in governmental consensus
And put my money down to what is sold
Centered in the department of public relations
They say, "Pleasure to the Betterment of Health!"
They say that we're in charge of the machinery at large
But we're just cattle with a sense of self

So long, so long
I won't remember this at all
Not like the way things used to be
Shake hands, keep quiet
Purchase, repeat
Dearest oblivion come to me

I check my screen for an update every minute or so
I am an advertisement of myself
With electronic discharge going into the brain
We don't need anything else
We're all living in the pocket of the vacuum tube
With no regard for the cost
The illusion's come alive, and we're just trying to imbibe
A blurry line is too easy to cross


So long, so long
I won't remember this at all
Not like the way things used to be
Shake hands, keep quiet
Purchase, repeat
Dearest oblivion come to me
